Debian Security Advisory DSA 963-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : mydns
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0351
BugTraq ID     : 16431
Debian Bug     : 348826

NISCC reported that MyDNS, a DNS server using an SQL database for data
storage, can be tricked into an infinite loop by a remote attacker and
hence cause a denial of service condition.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain mydns packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.0-4sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.0+pre-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your mydns package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
